Guest:

Mihir Desai, Mizuho Financial Group professor of finance at Harvard Business School and author of The Wisdom of Finance: Discovering Humanity in the World of Risk and Return

According to a recent study by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, more than 81% of college-educated millennials have at least one term debt, but only 24% can demonstrate basic financial knowledge. With such a need, how can organizations use financial education programs to recruit top talent and engage employees?

In today’s episode, Mihir Desai, author of The Wisdom of Finance, joins HR Break Room to discuss:

  • why financial literacy is so important to today’s largely millennial workforce, even if they don’t realize it
  • the benefits of having financial literacy programs available to employees
  • how these programs can benefit employee recruitment and engagement initiatives
